The true spirit of Christmas

On a modest street in a suburb of Watford town there is a house known as the Christmas House. Every year the house is decorated by its owner and the switching on of the lights attracts hundreds. The owner first began decorating his house in 1973, after being inspired by a visit to Treasure Island in California. Mr Edwards has raised over £30,000 for different charities. He was quoted in the local paper: “We do it every year and I will keep doing it as long as I can climb up a ladder and put the decorations up."

Surely this act of selfless generosity which brings so much delight to the festive season represents the true spirit of Christmas. 

I do hope you have had a wonderful Christmas xx
